Event description

Description

Join health policy expert Roy Lilley on 4th July, when he will be interviewing Richard Corbridge, Chief Executive of eHealth Ireland and CIO for HSE, for the first ever #HealthChat in Ireland.

It has been an eventful, and at times, challenging year for digital health globally. Success in Ireland includes the first ‘digital baby’ delivered in Cork, the infrastructure to sequence the genome for epilepsy, patients assigned an Individual Health Identifier for the first time and the business case for a national electronic health record being approved by the HSE.

However, more recently, the healthcare system contended with a global ransomware attack that affected over 40 NHS organisations in the UK and threatened to do the same here, but didn’t due to the way the eHealth Ireland team reacted.

The #HealthChat with CIO 100 leader Richard Corbridge will offer new insights on plans for a ‘digital fabric’ for health in Ireland, which will continue to be delivered under his leadership; his views on managing international pressures such as funding challenges and the need for health to catch up and become a digital ‘business’; and of course, how his passion for music influences his outlook on life.

Book early for what is set to be a sold-out event.

Refreshments and networking from 5.30pm with a 6pm start.

HealthChats are intimate networking events chaired by health policy analyst Roy Lilley, featuring influential healthcare figures as guests. Hosted by UK Healthgateway and sponsored by IMS MAXIMS.
